After two wins in Federal Court, Republicans had appealed to the U.S. Supreme Court to allow Secretary of State to not include the final 3 days before the election as part of the early voting plan in Ohio.

The court gave a one sentence ruling without dissent:

On the heels of this decision, Secretary of state Jon Husted issued a new directive that outlined hours for voting on the Saturday, Sunday, and Monday before the election.

Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern on a conference call today is now calling on Jon Husted to correct information that has been previously sent to voters informing them that there is no voting the 3 days prior to the election.  He’s asking for the Secretary of State to remedy this immediately in light of the Supreme Court ruling.

This is a big win in the fight for access to voting.  It shouldn’t be this hard fought, but we do what we have to do to ensure everyone has as much access as possible.
